Thanks TJ, that is what I was guessing. We had a Ford racer switch over to a carb recently and I think I remember him stating it was about 25 lbs lighter. I'm still not quite sure what that 45 lb disadvantage is Bryan was talking about. If it is iron heads then we can put the 302's in the same camp...

Dyno sheet for my throttle stopped, carb'd 302 from 2013. Had the tuner set me on the conservative side because it was the dead of summer in Fresno (115F) and I was headed to Laguna Seca (70s) and I didn't trust the mobile dyno they were bringing (turned out to be moot and the car made identical num...

Short of looking at the case or the shifter, theres not a lot to go on. Does it have a 5th gear shift location but no engagement? Or just 4 forward gears and reverse?

Also, are you planning on heading to any NASA events this year? I found myself taking the year off, but wouldn't mind meeting up.

Cheap (reasonably). Light. Strong.

No worries, Enkei is the new king of that "cheap lightweight wheel" title :D I found a couple more options by looking on eBay. STR 606 - BBS knockoffs. Sure are pretty, but probably heavy. $600 for a full set shipped Konig Torch - Links to Discount Tire Direct, not sure why I didn't see t...

Dillon wrote:They look like 5Zigen FN01R-Cs. I don't think they're made anymore, but at one time they were pretty much the cheapest lightweight wheel (around $200 each for 17x9s if I remember right), which I assume was the point of the post.


Whoops you're right, got my Japanese wheel manufacturers crossed.

I'm not convinced the track width change made any significant difference in my pace. I have yet to reset a PB with the wide track configuration. I do (and did) have concerns about making severely difficult to reverse body modifications to my car that would be dropped in the foreseeable future. To an...

This was tentative at best and I suspect has more to do with the Southern Cal schedule not being complete. Either way I have not seen anything official as of yet.

Well crap. Hopefully there's a good turnout at Buttonwillow, but I'll miss MRLS for sure. I could swing W. Nats if I get enough events under my belt. How bad do the CMC cars get smoked when they run AI? Anyone slow enough to keep up with? Is it worth doing a quasi-AI car or are the CA AI guys prett...

This was given to me as the west coast AI schedule and usually the CMC schedule is in lock step with AI (though it really looks like just a SoCal schedule). I'm not sure of anyone who is planning on running a full season in CMC, could be wrong though. 2014 AI West schedule Feb 8-9: Chuckwalla March ...
